Doft Takes Half, Laak Gets Quartered

• Level 9: 500-1,000, 0 ante

Elie Doft raised from under the gun and middle position player made it three bets to go. Phil Laak four-bet from the next seat over and both Doft and the middle position player called.

The trio took a monotone flop of {8-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and action checked around to the short-stacked Laak. He led out and Doft instantly raised the action. The middle position player called, Laak three-bet, Doft four-bet, and was called by both players. Laak called all in heading to the turn.

The turn was the {5-Hearts} and Doft led out. His opponent called in a side pot and the {3-Spades} finished the board. Doft bet and his opponent called once more.

Doft rolled over {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs} which was good enough to win him the high with a club flush. The middle position player showed {A-Spades}{J-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for the nut low and Laak tabled {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{2-Spades} for the same low. Doft took the high and his two opponents chopped the low.

Doft now has about 65,000 while Laak is still representing the short stack with 6,300 in chips.
